High spatial resolution stress-sensing materials ebled through the dispersion of no-sensor particles have potentially significant benefits in monitoring structural health and impending failure when integrated with load-bearing structures. Such materials will answer a significant need for noninvasive methods to assess the integrity and quality of carbon-based composites with a surge in their usage as aerospace structures. In this study, stress sensing noparticle-matrix systems will be incorporated with existing carbon-fiber reinforced composites and piezospectroscopic (PS) methods will be used to establish damage detection capabilities.
